It's All In How You Look At it

We all wake up and move through our days.  During that day someone will ask “How is your day going?”  Most of us unfortunately start with the complaints instead of the blessings. There are many answers we can give, but it is all in how you look at it.

You could say….

“I woke up late”, but did you get where you had to go and did you get there safely?

“My Boss laid into me”, but did someone else pay you a compliment?

“I had to work through lunch”, but did you get a meal today? 

“I had to work late”, but did you get a lot of work done, and did you make overtime?

We can see any situation as good or bad it’s all in how we choose to look at it.  It’s easy to recall all the things that you consider unpleasant in your life because you choose to make those things important, but what if you were to change the things that you focus on?  What if you focused on the positive instead of the negative? There would be such a difference in your life if instead of looking at the negative you tried focusing on the positive. You have to remember that just  because the day didn’t go the way you wanted it to, it doesn’t mean it didn’t go the way you needed it to. 

Instead of  starting with all of the things that went wrong when someone ask “How is your day is going?” why not start with all the things that went right? When you focus on the positive there is always more positive to focus on.  If you start with the positive, the negative wouldn’t seem worth mentioning at all. 

How was your day today? 

Love  and blessings in divine order,
